Civil Naming Ceremonies: Humanist Ceremony
Humanists aim to draw positive moral values from life that are based on human experience, rather than God-given. They don't believe in an afterlife, but think that 'we should try to live full and happy lives ourselves... and make it easier for other people to do the same'. Their ceremonies are popular with people who have no religious affiliations. They can provide ideas for readings, a structured ceremony and a celebrant.
